A Jamaica Estates man was arrested on Sunday after allegedly trying to run over a Nassau County police officer.
Muhammad Ali, 21, was wanted in connection with an armed robbery on Jan. 3 in Hicksville, LI. Nassau County police located him outside 178-10 Wexford Terrace in Jamaica Estates.
Four plainclothes officers showed their badges when Ali allegedly resisted arrest by attempting to flee the scene in his car, crushing one of the men between two cars.
As he turned toward a second policeman, the officer shot Ali in the chest. Both men are being treated in area hospitals for non-life threatening injuries.
